"Morpheus" Group Show @ Copro Gallery, Santa MonicaJuxtapoz // Friday, 11 Jul 2014
Copro Gallery presents a group exhibition curated by James Cowan & Morpheus Gallery. Morpheus began in 1989 by publishing books and prints by Swiss surrealist and ALIEN designer, H.R. Giger, and expanded to include such artists as De Es Schwertberger, Jacek Yerka, Judson Huss, and Zdzislaw Beksinski. Morpheus has focused on contemporary masters of the fantastic and surreal, all with a strong technique and unique imagination. Recently, Morpheus has begun working with Polish artist Dariusz Zawadzki, American painter Geoffrey Gersten and the transformative portraitist, Jota Leal.
James began the art publishing and exhibiting firm over twenty years ago in Beverly Hills, CA , and currently operates it out of Las Vegas. Cowan also began Morpheus Fine Watches recently and released an H.R. Giger watch design. When not managing Morpheus, Cowan writes, and currently has a film in development with Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz.
The exhibition at the Copro Gallery will include numerous works by Jota, Geoffrey Gersten and Dariusz Zawadzki, with a sampling of other fine artists. Jota and Gersten will attend the opening event and there will be live music from MAC SABBATH!
The show opens Saturday, July 12, 2014.
